I don't know what did it for me. Enchanted April? Or was it Under the Tuscan Sun ? (I think both those film/books were inspirations for Hidden in Paris) Or does it have something to do with that dangerous Italian boy I dated for three years? The point is, I've always wanted to learn to speak Italian. Once a year I pick up a set of audio tapes at the library and work at feverishly for a few weeks. And then life gets in the way.
It's a fantasy that many share to be able to speak Italian, with Italians, in Italy. To me it would not hurt if this happened in April and in Tuscany. (George Clooney was part of my fantasy but now that he's married I lost interest.) So imagine my dismay when after all those years, when I am only able to butcher a few words, my characters are overnight fluent in Italian!
2015 is when the good news of 2014 come to life. I'm so excited that Hidden in Paris will be available in the Italian language. My publisher Sperling Kupfer has just made the announcement so I guess it's official. RICOMINCIARE A PARIGI is real :)
And look at this gorgeous cover!
The ebook is available just in time for San Valentino. So if you want to spend Valentines Day in Paris, and in Italian, here is your chance :) The paperback is now available as of March 3rd.
Note: this is fun, now you can read this post in Italian here!
